Custodial killing of Maulana Khalid Mujahid by U.P. police under state government supervision highly condemnable: APCR

IMO News Service

Mariahu /New Delhi: Association for Protection of Civil Rights (APCR), a New Delhi-based civil rights NGO, has strongly condemned the suspicious custodial killing of Maulana Khalid Mujahid in Barabanki,Uttar Pradesh by U.P.police under the supervision of state government.

"The statement of SP Bararbanki Waseem Ahmad given even prior to the postmortem that Khalid died on the way in Barabanki when he along with other three accused was returning from Faizabad court to Lucknow jail and the death was natural, seems false and fabricated. While as per Khalid’s advocates when he met Khalid in the Faizabad court at 3:30 p.m he was dressed in kurta pajama and was healthy but when he seen his body after the panchnama in Barabanki district hospital surprisingly the body was dressed in lower and T-shirt having injuries on neck & ankle. There were many dark blood spots on nose and ear of the body and most objectionable thing is that the panchnama was signed by ruling party leaders. Khalid’s uncle Zaheer Alam Falahi also approves the sign of injuries on the dead body. These contradictory facts and statements create suspicion and directing towards a big conspiracy in this custodial death," said Akhlaq Ahmad, Coordinator, APCR, in a press release.

"APCR strongly feels that custodial killing of innocents arrested in the name of terrorism is a set policy of state agencies to save themselves from any legal action. We had seen it in the murder of Qateel siddiqui who was arrested and then killed in Pune Jail in 2012. It seems that killing of Khalid Mujahid belongs to the same chain. APCR contends that this is a planned murder of an innocent Indian citizen who was in judicial custody and belongs to the religious minority community. It is observed that custodial death of Khalid Mujahid is planned and executed by those state players who were named in the Nimesh Inquiry commission report as the culprits of illegal detention and torture of this youth," Mr. Akhlaq said.

The APCR has made the following demands from the state government:

(1.) Terminate & Arrest all the police personnel’s at once named in the F.I.R filed by Zaheer Alam Falahi ,uncle of Khalid Mujahid in Barabanki Police station and start legal action against all of them .

(2.) Start C.B.I enquiry of the incident covering all the state agencies and police officers nominated in the Nimesh Enqiry commission report including the police escort carrying Khalid Mujahid & the District Magistrate, Supretendent of the Barabanki District.

(3.) Release all innocents arrested in the name of terrorism as per the commitment written in the party manifesto.

(4.) Table the report of Nimesh Inquiry commission in the assembly without any delay.

(5.) Pay life compensation to the family of Khalid Mujahid.
